Horizon

Horizon represents a production philosophy that, together with the unique nature of our Montalcino soils, allows us to obtain an optimal expression of Sangiovese. It is a Banfi style, authentic and original, made possible thanks to years of research on clonal selection, soil studies, the careful selection of vineyard sites and the vines to grow there, and other high level solutions in both vineyard and winery. 

The grapes, carefully selected and harvested only by hand, arrive at the winery in ideal condition.  The manual selection of the bunches is then followed by selection of the individual grapes, an intense process that guarantees the exclusive use of raw materials that are in absolutely perfect condition. 

The true revolution is embodied in the tanks, hybrid construction using stainless steel and wood, where fermentation takes place.  From this unique and inventive fusion of materials, Banfi captures the advantages of each.  The Horizon vinification area is completely visible to our visitors thanks to comfortable architectural solutions such as a bridge allowing passage above the entire vinification process.

This innovative fermentation area guarantees winemaking that exalts the unique characteristics of these grapes and this territory.  The hybrid fermentation tanks allow for optimal temperature control as well as other aspects of fermentation, assuring the end result of wines that are less astringent, less bitter, and softer. 

If the soul of Horizon is in the vineyards, the winery is without a doubt its very heart.  Designed to preserve and highlight the integrity of the best grapes, the winery represents the ultimate expression of Horizon, a unique and authentic production style that designates new horizons for the wines of Banfi.
